My second year of being a part of From
Screen to Theme and the W.E.D.nesday Show by Matt Myers
I just got back form Disneyland on Monday, March 9th
and began to talk to Diz the day afterwards. He told me about the
W.E.D.nesday Show and I decided to check it out. The second week I
came on I met Melissa and Pap who I introduced myself to them and
found out they were on Facebook too. I added them and the host Brent
Dodge. I soon found Albert and Becky and was soon addicted to the
show. I then bought a copy of the book and went to Disneyland!
In May, 2010 the W.E.D.nesday Show had it's first
show in Disneyland and I met Brent, Frank, and Dave in person the
next day. We went on Space Mountain and I got Brent to autograph my
copy of the book. I was so happy to be the first person to join the
show in Disneyland!
When Destination D came to Disneyland I decided to
compete against Brent Dodge in a Scavenger Hunt, and later that day
we had a meet where I met a lot of the WEDfriends including Kayla,
Shawn, Joey, and more! I had so much fun that I became a D23 Member
In 2011 I met my first Disney Legend, Bob Gurr (who
made the monorail and submarine) and I met the Disney Geek the same
day! After that I eventually went to the Walt Disney Studios for my
first time for an event too! I then went to the Disney Imagineering
shop, Mickey's of Glendale and took a full tour of the studio where
I met Dave Smith which was awesome!
The D23 Expo was unbelievable. I saw the 2011 Disney
Legends receive their awards and I met so many WEDfriends at the
meet including Becky, Mariel, Erik and Shelly, Shawn and Kayla,
Lonnie, and finally met Brent's mom and brother for the first time.
I have had a great time knowing everyone the last two years and I
hope you have enjoyed hanging out with me in person and in the chat!
